Discovery's Last Ride

by NASA

Published September 21, 2010


At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Discovery is attached to Launch Pad 39A, completing ''rollout'' from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A. It took the shuttle, attached to its external fuel tank, twin solid rocket boosters and mobile launcher platform, about six hours to complete the move atop a crawler-transporter. On its final mission, Discovery will take the Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) packed with supplies and critical spare parts, as well as Robonaut 2 (R2) to the International Space Station.
